Usher Accuser Tweeted That She Needed Money One Week Before Press Conference

At a NY press conference on Monday, Sharpton, now 21, spoke about the moment she learned about Usher's alleged diagnosis - three years after sleeping with the singer.

Sharpton said the pair "engaged in sexual contact" after an Usher concert where she was celebrating her 19th birthday. "Later a security guard told me Usher had seen me backstage and was interested in me", Sharpton said. But after he left, she "never heard from him again".

Sharpton made a decision to get on board, claiming that she felt her rights were violated because, if she had known he had herpes, she would never have had sex with him. Bloom says the lawsuit alleges Raymond, 38, contracted genital herpes before his encounters with her clients, which Bloom says occurred after 2012.

As far as the lawsuits against Usher, attorney Lisa Bloom is representing three victims who claim to have had unprotected sex with the singer.

"We hope that Mr Raymond (Usher) tests negative for herpes, and that this can all be cleared up quickly", she added.

According to the filing, submitted to the Los Angeles Superior Court on Monday, New York Marine and General Insurance Company reportedly claim they're not obligated to defend Usher, born Usher Raymond, in his current lawsuits in California and Georgia, or any others that may crop up in the future.

Bloom and Sharpton both appeared at the press conference, which took place at the New York Hilton in Midtown Manhattan.

Sharpton, along with two other individuals referred to as Jane Doe and John Doe, are suing Usher, alleging he failed to disclose that he carried the herpes virus, thus putting them at risk of infection.

Rain chances linger for Friday
Tuesday will have another lovely day with partly cloudy skies, and temperatures in the lower 90s. High temperatures will range from the low to mid-80s during that period, the weather says.

"No one in America, not even a popular celebrity, is above the law".

According to the lawsuit obtained by the news site, all three complainants reiterated that Usher "knowingly exposed them to #herpes". She alledges that, Due to a birthday crown she was wearing, she was invited backstage to meet the DJ Got Us Fallin' in Love singer.

Bloom's statement did not say whether any of them contracted a sexually transmitted disease. "Although I am negative I was upset by the reports, because I would never have consented if I would have known", Sharpton said.

"I am speaking out today on behalf of myself and others, some of whom are positive and are embarrassed to speak out publicly", she said.

Soaking rain today with the slight risk of severe weather
Dew points north of I-20 should be in the upper 60s, but south of I-20 will remain in the low 70s. Sunday will be mostly sunny and mostly dry as temperatures return to the low-middle 90s.

They can't call him either because he always called them from a blocked number, she says. I don't know where they're getting this August sh*t from. She is now urging the crooner to publicly deny the allegations and get the tested to prove his innocence.
